REWARDS AND PUNISHMENTS

Hugh Evan Hopkins said "The problem of evil arises largely from the belief that a good God would reward each man according to his deeds and that an almighty God would have no difficulty in carrying this out. The fact that rewards and punishments, in the way of happiness and discomfort, appear to be haphazardly distributed in this life drives many to question either the goodness of God or His power”.
